IOSYS – 恋に焦がれた八百万
I love the feel in this song. I know 3L is doing one part of the vocals, but I don’t know who.. the other person is…
C80 is coming soon, I think. Or has it already passed? I don’t really keep track. I’m sure I’ll know when I see download links all over the place.
例大祭８ releases are being put out, what a week.
C-CLAYS:FIORITA:With all of my hearts
The first song I heard from R8. I like 小峠 舞 (usually), and while this one isn’t my favorite, I still think it’s alright. I’m not sure what it is about it, I guess I don’t like how Cosmic Mind sounds when it’s at a slower pace like this.
After that, 3 songs from Syrufit’s R8 album:
Not crazy about these either, but I still liked them.
Tamaonsen:Momoiro Distance:Furerarenai Monogatari (I don’t know if that’s actually what it says…)
Now this song, I really liked. The last time I remember hearing her was from Tamaonsen’s Chill Now. The song’s got a really pleasant feel, and I love Taketori Hishou. It’s kind of hard to even tell that it’s Bamboo Cutter though, at least for me.
流星ドライヴ (Loves ‘BT’ Remix)
From the same album. I enjoyed listening to this one too. Not quite as much as the last one though. I guess the melody didn’t seem to flow as nicely, to me at least.
Last one I care to mention:
Buta Otome:Kansha Kangeki Ame Arare:Yurara Kamishibai
From Buta Otome’s R8 album, there were only 5 tracks, this one being the first and my favorite. I was so close to immediately skipping this track when I heard the beginning, but I was typing something else and I didn’t bother until I heard the rest of the song, at which point I no longer wanted to skip it. Suimusou is great, and having Ranko’s voice on top of it just makes it better.
りすとら(Liz Triangle) – S4U – 命の降る郷. I’m somewhat of a fan of lily-an and Liz Triangle.
萃まる想い 胸に秘め 【空に流れゆく 言の葉】
【愛し 悲し】 過去も今も捨て去り騒げ
【退かず 満ちず】 雲間に移る月に吼える
萃まる夢 幻 百鬼夜行 巡り巡る 宴に乗せて
【一期一会 今この時を 楽しまねば損でしょう？】
夢か現か この幻想は 集う命の降る郷
Songs that I liked that either came out recently or I have only recently heard.
Listed as:[CIRCLE] – [ALBUM] – [TRACK]
Pizuya’s Cell – Shooting Star – PHOENIX EYES. I’ve always liked Mokou’s theme, and while the pitch of her voice gets a little high for my tastes, I like the beat and melody. It gives the theme a lively feel.
魂音泉 – ChillNow – きみのゆめをみるよ. I don’t actually like this theme all that much, but the style of the arrangement is nice.
魂音泉 – ChillNow – 愛き夜道. I’ve always liked ランコ, and it’s hard for me to not enjoy a song she sings. Usually I try to avoid male vocals (or male-sounding, at any rate), but I guess this isn’t… terrible. Usually I find male vocals whiny-sounding, but that isn’t a problem here. The lyrics are pleasant as well.
Coro – World’s End Garden – ないものねだり ~Ask for the Moon~. Margatroid’s theme with a jazzy feel. Is this what could be called ‘jazzy’? I don’t actually know music too well. After hearing 愛き夜道 (above), I’ve been looking for songs sung by Tama-chan, and this must have been one of the songs I found.
Also, some songs sung by 舞小峠. Her voice is pleasantly deep, at least compared to what you usually get in this field of music.
K2SOUND – 麗鳴 RAY-MEI – Departure.
C-CLAYS – 灯岸-HIGAN- – Arrival.
C-CLAYS – 煌彩 -KOUSAI- – 愛しキミヲミツケニ.
ランコ is nice too, but not because I think she has a great singing voice. I just like her sound; I like imagining her putting a lot of effort into singing. Or whatever.
豚乙女 – 縁 – 魂極る命の響. Brings me back to all of those deaths on Youmu’s noncards. It came to the point where I knew exactly what to do when they came, and yet I still managed to crash into bullets that weren’t even heading towards me. So, so painful. I think ランコ is best suited to fast-paced songs like this one.
豚乙女 – 縁 – 響縁. I don’t like the melody of the arrangement, but that’s probably because I don’t like [少女綺想曲 ～ Dream Battle]. I think I just like the vocals.
I won’t pretend SNSD isn’t catchy as hell, I’ve had ‘Oh!’ on loop for a while.
